Swimming and diving. Came in close enough that I could get a decent photo.

Observation details

Breeding plumage: Black and white checkered back. Heavy black bill. Black head with red eye. I noticed the first loon early this morning on the West end of Crystal Reservoir. Twenty minutes later while scanning the water I noticed the second Common Loon on the Southeast corner. Later they came together. They were diving and swimming.
